Canyons may look dead but they if you go deep into them you will find great liveliness in those rocks. Gnishik in Armenia is nature's delight. First to get to Gnishik village from where you can trek to the canyon it would take around 2 hours drive from Yerevan. Gnishik is in trilogy here. Gnishik village, Gnishik river and of course Gnishik canyon. Till you reach the village the journey is quite comfortable as road is good but the journey ahead to the canyon is a challenging one. You have to put your foot forward safely to enjoy the scene. And many a times you have to cross through river also to get to the other side and continue the journey. But you will find it thrilling.
